The only 100% biodegradable toothbrush I could find anywhere on the planet!, with new technology that has heat treated bamboo bristles, coated with a plant-based bioplastic. Bamboo toothbrushes help to reduce plastic waste because they are biodegradable (you can put them into your compost). It's a simple everyday swap from plastic to bamboo that will help the environment...and it won't hurt a bit.
They're made from natural bamboo, fair trade, sustainably grown and are naturally antimicrobial (kills germs), so using one increases your oral hygiene without effort on your part. The charcoal infused bamboo fibre bristles are coated in a plant starch based bio-plastic that will degrade within a few years, ...a fraction of the time it takes nylon to break down.
While this tech is very new, the heat treating process helps us use bamboo bristles with a plant based protective coating rather than nylon.
These are SOFT bristles suitable for sensitive gums and children. Dentists recommend a soft bristle toothbrush to encourage the best gum health and oral hygiene.
The charcoal infusion will help to fight against bacteria & plaque, but for total oral hygiene, use in conjunction with 'Mother O Pearl' powdered toothpaste and 'Fresh Pearl' oral care oil daily. If you're a tea and/or coffee drinker, smoker or have gone through illness that has left your pearlies less white than you'd want, use 'Black Pearl' daily as well.
With a softer bristle that's recommended by dentists for your gums, these toothbrushes are suitable for adults and children over the age of 8. It is recommended that you change your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months and to check it after each month of use.
100% Biodegradable Charcoal Infused Toothbrush
Leave your bamboo toothbrush to dry out between uses and do not enclose it in a container unless you're traveling.
MEM recommends using 'Fresh Pearl' Aromatherapy Blend to disinfect your toothbrush each week for a great dental hygiene routine. Simple add 1 to 3 drops of Fresh Pearl to a cup of warm water and vigorously clean your toothbrush till it is clear of any residue from pastes or powders. Allow to dry in the sun if possible.
Avoid using 'toothpastes' as they contain soap-like substances that can clog up the bristles.
